I'm not just imagining societies that are becoming more open & (arguably) liberal... many societies swerve to the right, too. Like Iran, or Germany (1930s), Yugoslavia, & the US... Perhaps people espousing liberal & tolerant views today are creating the evidence that'll convict them of future thought crimes against a future dystopian authoritarian state (run by, say, one of the "Frightful 5" corporations)...

@InternetKevin I'm worried life could be a bit shorter still if we don't work out a way to mitigate the source of worry... :)
